the director of the mason-dixon poll to say this. romney has nailed down unless something changes. romney's going to win florida. and he made that prediction based on the math of the i-4 corridor. you guys, can you lose the i-4 corridor and win florida? it's nearly impossible, right? >> well, we're not going to lose the i-4 corridor, and we don't agree with those numbers. and if you look at the enthusiasm just reflected in the turnout in the i-4 corridor, we really -- we beat the republicans in early voting this weekend in hillsborough county, which is one end of the corridor. we beat them in orange county as well. and if you even look at seminole county, which also has a significant republican registration advantage, we beat them, just barely, but we beat them in early voting turnout. we're running up numbers that are going to ensure that president obama carries the i-4 corridor and carries the state of florida. i mean, we just have a ground game that is really superior to them. and we have enthusiasm that has blown the doors off of early voting, even better numbers than 2008. >> we will
story will not be something that goes along like today, romney took his message of change to fill in the blank. and finally, the storm could put a premium on mechanics. and while the romney campaign is certainly a lot better than john mccain's 2008 operation, the more this race focuses on mechanics, the better it is probably for the obama campaign. asked whether the storm could affect early voting, the president said that remains to be seen. >> we don't anticipate that at this point, but we're obviously going to take a look. >>> well, it's the october surprise. that we know. and the thing we don't know is what is exactly the impact going to be? we've got a lot of storm coverage to get to, and we'll get to that next. we'll go to point pleasant beach, new jersey. the storm is already kicking up serious waves there. we'll also head to florida. a state that knows storms well. that's where the president was supposed to be this morning opinion bmorning, but sandy forced a last-minute schedule change. debbie wassermann schultz will join us. >>> plus, we've got a slew of new swing state p
but romney's frequent changes raise questions about his core principles and make the lack of details all the more troubling. they make you wonder if he would stand up to the more extreme elements of his own party. especially the house republicans who undercut ohioan john boehner's attempt to get a debt deal and negotiate a deficit. how do you respond to that, governor? >> look at his record. a guy created jobs, he's a job creator. we need that. jobs are the greatest moral issue in american today, when people are working, families are stronger and children are better off. number one. number two, he was governor from massachusetts, they went from deficits to surpluses, from job loss to job creation. then you look at the olympics where he was a pure leader. you look at the history and it tells you who the guy is he's pragmatic, no question about it. but he's also tough and he's firm and he understands job creation. in terms of people not getting him -- the first debate, david, i've never seen a debate have this much impact. but the first debate gave people a chance to see well you know, the
and romney were tied according to many polls. obama people claim he had a lead in ohio. changed the dynamic on the ground. >> we now have a rasmussen poll, the first, i believe, of any of them to show romney ahead. the other sho they are tied. it's ted heat of a state romney had in his pocket a month ago. >> if you freeze race -- >> you freeze it to some extent. you leave five days instead of eight days. i'm not sure it's decisive. the polls tell us absent the hurricane, romney is a slow and steady tortoise in the race. be passing obama. he probably still does. look at the national poll. you cannot, if gallup is anywhere near right. gallup has him up six. say he is up three. you can't win national election by three points and lose in the electoral college. this is uncon zeable. if you win in popular vote you lose electoral in the year 2000 the margin is fraction of fraction of fraction of 1% of one state if florida. the national polls they are disconnected, you can't have a disconnect that large between the national and electoral college. >> i find ohio numbers hard to believe. if it is tig
about what people say are completely irrelevant. governor romney has changed his position on just about everything throughout his entire career. and that, i believe, bedevils the fact checkers who will say, "well, his official position is this, but then he did that. so it's hard to know, but you can't really say, this is true because also that's true." if that's the context, if that's what's going on, then i'm not sure what can be learned at all about governor romney because the chances of him saying something different, doing something different once the election comes, based on his behavior during this campaign and while he's been running for president, are extremely high. >> let me give you an example of what people have learned. people know that governor romney is going to increase spending for the military. and that's a consequential difference. they know that president obama is going to increase taxes, where, where governor romney is not if he's elected president. that's an important issue distinction. coming into the last debate, the annenberg survey showed that the public though
. what they're seeing is governor romney has a plan to change things, turn things around. big changes needed right now in washington that people think is broken. and president obama who has glossy new brochure, when you look inside it is more of the same. bill: when you think about what the obama team did in 2008, i mean do you have to, do you have to go well beyond the numbers of 2004? and because when you talk about these voters who voted for the president four years ago and they have been disillusioned and perhaps not supporting him now, can you point to examples or concrete evidence where the obama supporters of 2008 have left him now? >> i can and it's the early voting numbers that are coming in. looks like we are overperforming in all the early voting and democrats are underperforming as compared to 2008. and we expected early voting to go more towards democrats because that is what happened in 2008. democrats like to vote early. republicans like to vote on election day. despite that we've been able to increase our numbers significantly and their numbers are down. so i think the
obama and mitt romney have been forced to change their campaign scandals. one thing that has been settled. the labor department planning to release the october jobs report, the last one before the election. peter barnes is in washington with the latest on that. peter. >> we're in the briefing room in the white house. we're in the middle of a political campaign, the race for the presidency and the president deciding this morning to skip a campaign in florida to get back here to the white house. he also canceled a campaign event in wisconsin scheduled for tomorrow. the white house said he wanted to be here to stay on top of hurricane sandy and to direct the federal response. he met with his homeland security team here at the white house this morning in the situation room. afterwards briefed reporters who asked him if he was concerned that the storm might have any impact on next week's election? >> i am not worried at this point about the impact on the election. i'm worried about the impact on families and i'm worried about the impact on our first-responders. i'm worried about the im
. the sioux city journal, our opinion, mitt romney, the change america needs. the most important endorsement came from the des moines register which has not backed a republican candidate for president for 40 years. a point stephanie cutteer tried to downplay. >> they endorsed mitt romney in the primary so it's not a surprise. the editorial didn't seem to be based in reality in the president's record or mitt romney's record. they said he would reach across the aisle and it's the opposite of what he did in massachusetts. megyn: as we have our debate we'll put pictures on the storm for our viewers so they can continue to monitor what's happening in this country. there are two storms. one is weather and one is political. it's incredible to watch this major news story disrupt the presidential race news story. we want to get to the situation in iowa. which is a critical swing state and important to any path to victory romney would have if he were to lose ohio, in particular, and the des moines register, first time in 40 years they get behind a republican. why? >> the reason is, and they point out
to are likely to change the outcome. romney and obama are in their own environment and will be decided on issues and personality and candidate quality separate to that. host: a history of eight years of the democratic state house. governor ridge, governor rendell -- they were elected republican senators in the state, including rick santorum, and now split between pat to me and bob casey, running for reelection areit is pretty divid state when it comes to elected officials. guest: that is right. we're a quintessential swing state -- neither party is capable of the state level of winning elections. the democrats went through the state in 2006 and 2008, what we called the iraq war alexian, local ratings for president bush. 2008, the recession election, then 20 can they swept back into control of the governorship and both houses of the state -- in 2012 republicans swept back into the governorship and both houses. the biggest edge -- the biggest at any party has had since the 1950's. senator toomey, former congressman now senator, elected as well. the governor elected by 9%. statewide elections -- we
four years because i don't give a dam about climate change and the storms they produce. oh that was not part of the official statement. okay. and then of course leave it to fox news to say if romney's canceling events. that's fine. what a gentleman he is. what a terrific human being. if president obama is canceling events disarray. >> the president left for orlando. nothing has changed that much. does it show disarray or discontent within the obama election campaign where he comes down doesn't do anything, and then flies back. >> the president can be unpredictable. a lot of reason why they brought the president back was they didn't know how bad the weather would be in washington. >> it's the image of him campaigning on the day of the hurricane. >> he can't do that. >> cenk: no, no, you know, obama, he doesn't know what is going on. [ chuckling ] coincidentally on fox news. in 2013 the request for the fema budget is a little over $13.5 billion. you need that, obviously because we're getting more and more severe storms every year, including hurricane sandy that is hitting us
minute counts and now the storm come it is forcing president obama and mitt romney to change campaign plans. president obama cancelling his trip to orlando and heading back to washington dc. mike emmanuel is tanding by. a quick audible by the president. >> he's in orlando and decided to pull the plug on the event in the university of central florida designed to rally the youth vote. he was due to do three events with forevermore president clinton. the event will continue on here but the president due to the deteriorating weather conditions in washington decide go back to washington to oversee and monitor the federal reponce to the hurricane that is hitting the east coast dilemma for the obama campaign. you want your message out to people yet to rote and then critical yob of leading the federal government. here is the president talking about the hurricane in fema head quarters. my message to the governors and mayors, anything they need we'll be there. we'll cut through red tape and not get bogged down with a lot of rules. >> so the visit's president to orlando was a visit to the campai

of climate change. >> how do you think romney is feeling this morning for having the one mention his made the whole time, his big laugh line the republican convention was how silly it was for obama to be talking about slowing the rise of the oceans? i think that wins pretty much every prize for irony right now. there has been a pervading climate silence. we were doing our best to break that. yesterday afternoon, there was a demonstration in times square , a timesdot to connect the dots with -- a giant dot to connect the dots there is a vigil to try to get the senate candidates to address the issue with, change. it is incredibly important that we not only, first party is people safety and assisting relief efforts in every possible way, but it is also important that everybody, even those who are not in the path of this storm, reflect about what it means to have the warmest year in u.s. history when we as in the warmest month, july, of any month in a year in u.s. history, in the year when we saw, essentially, summer sea ice in the arctic vanished before our eyes. what it means now that we're
